  • Can I bring my laptop on the plane?

Laptops are allowed on the plane, but make sure there is no internet. If the laptop is for personal use and the rated energy value of the lithium-ion battery does not exceed 100wh, it can be carried on the plane. In order to improve the speed of security inspection, it is best to take out the computer bag in advance during the security inspection of the laptop, and pass the inspection of the X-ray machine separately from other packages. Do not put CDs in the CD-ROM drive of the computer, and do not install hardware devices such as USB flash drives and wireless network cards. It is also best to put the power mouse into the X-ray machine separately from the computer for inspection, so as not to cause unnecessary trouble in the security check. Don’t carry a lighter in your laptop bag. There are smoking places at the airport, which can guarantee the needs of smokers, and checking and carrying lighters are expressly prohibited. In order to speed up the efficiency of the security check, try to check the paste-like and pasty items instead of putting them in the computer bag. There is no hard and fast rule on the number of computers carried by passengers on domestic flights, but there are certain requirements on the battery of the computer. If you are carrying more than two notebooks, it is best to separate the battery from the computer and pack the battery with insulating materials such as foam paper.
